  • 2.30pm Clip ‘n Climb Briefing
  • 3pm Clip ‘n Climb ActivityUnder 5’s & 6 year olds– they will need an accompanying adult to help them clip in and out. The adult must watch the safety brief. The Clip’n’Climb session is not appropriate for very young children. Anyone under the age of 5 must have a supervising adult at all times on both sessions7 – 17 year olds– this age group can normally use the self-clipping “belay-mate” system unaided, so can participate without an accompanying adult. We therefore prefer non-climbing adults accompanying this age group to watch from outside the arena.18 years plus– adults are more than welcome to book on as well.SEND Participants– it is up to participants and those accompanying SEND participants to judge if the session is appropriate. We normally ask that accompanying adults of SEND participants come in to the arena to assist with safety and clipping in and out. Accompanying adults must watch the safety brief.

Please arrive at your booked session time you do not need to arrive earlier than this. Our session times allow for a 30 minute check in and briefing so you can get your full hour of session! (missing your start time may mean you miss the whole session. You must attend a briefing at the start of your session. We only run one brief per session. If you miss your briefing we may not have the staff available to run one specifically for late comers as we are preparing for the next group).
